The Context Fabric: Infrastructure Support for Context-Aware Computing

Jason Hong, UC Berkeley

Despite hardware advances in wireless networking and sensors, and software advances in toolkits, it is still quite difficult to build effective and reliable context-aware applications. We propose to build a context infrastructure that provides three things to greatly simplify the task of building robust context-ware applications: a distributed data model representing people, places, and things; a context specification language for declaratively stating context needs; and a distributed context service for fulfilling these needs.
